the future of america's most popular sport? weighing in. oj simpson and the mini series. >> people are, oh, the acting is riveting and this is a great plot line. i'm thinking, this is murder. >> this morning, what they say you're not seeing on the show. rose garden rap. the creator of "hamilton" enlists the help of the president for a free style performance performance. >> you think that's going viral? >> one for the history books today, tuesday, march 15th, 2016. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie, live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. >> good morning. welcome to "today." election day in many states.
7:02 am
itself. in front of the president -- >> "hamilton" taking over the white house. you said this reminded you of 1965, when bob dillon came out with subterranean home sick blues. >> you mentioned '80s ripping off on that. we'll talk about that in a moment. election day, presidential race, voters in five states are heading to the polls today. headlined by the winner take all contests in florida and ohio. we'll break that down and talk to donald trump live. first, peter alexander is in the buckeye state. good morning. >> good morning. this is the day that so many republican candidates had circled on their calendar for months. so much riding on the state of ohio. what was today will go a long way in determining whether this race becomes a coronation for donald trump or we're headed to a contested convention in the buckeye state this summer.
7:03 am
we'll have a phenomenal day. >> reporter: donald trump, >> get him out of here. >> reporter: dismissing protesters in tampa with the help of sarah palin. >> what we don't have time for is all that petty [ bleep ] thuggery stuff that's been going on with these quote, unquote, protesters. >> reporter: the former alaska governor heading home to be with her husband todd, seriously injured in a snow machine accident. for kasich and rubio, it's d day. win their home states or stay home. >> i win ohio and continue to take this program forward, it's going to send a positive message to the world. >> it comes down to florida. this state will elect 99 delegates to one person. and i want it to be me, and i need you to help it to be me. >> reporter: rubio later backtracking, insisting he could survive a loss in florida.
7:04 am
built on the outcome of any special state. >> kasich alongside mitt romney, looking for his first win. hoping his popularity with ohio republicans translates into an ohio victory. >> why is it neck and neck with trump here? >> i don't think it is. we're ahead. >> reporter: what he calls a toxic environment at trump rallies. >> it's lowering a bar and creating a bad image for america. >> reporter: a north carolina sheriff's office told nbc news it won't file charges against trump after an investigation into whether trump's statements at a rally last week where a protester was sucker punched, constituted a riot. but it keeps coming. >> bimbo. dog. fat pig. real quotes by donald trump about women.
7:05 am
>> reporter: still, the rhetoric is con stage tagious. >> sir, one difference between this and a donald trump rally. i'm not asking anyone to punch you in the face. >> for mainstream republicans, the so-called establishment, this is the last stand in ohio and florida. i was struck by what mitt romney said campaigning alongside john kasich yesterday. he said to his supporters, america is counting on you. matt and savannah? >> peter alexander, thank you. donald trump joins us by phone now. good morning to you. >> morning. >> tim used to have a saying about elections. he'd hold up the board and it'd say, ohio, ohio, ohio. if you win florida and ohio, you could be on your way to the nomination. you're going against the sitting governor, john kasich. he's never lost a statewide election. could he ruin your night? >> well, he's 22-0 in terms of losing.
7:06 am
he's been in. i'll tell you what -- in terms of the presidential, he's done very, very poorly. i've spent a lot of time in ohio. i was there last night in youngstown. he is not a popular guy. he approved nafta. he's trying to approve tpp, which is a total disaster. nafta destroyed ohio, took the businesses out, and he voted for it. look what he's done. in favor of common core. he's just now come out in favor of amnesty and open borders. i think the man is not very popular. i don't. he has not won one race in terms of presidential. i guess he's 0 for 22. i don't see it happening. i've been with the people of ohio. they hate the fact their coal and steel industries are gone. i think we're going to do well in ohio. >> mr. trump, if you are able to win in ohio, win in florida, have a big night tonight, and it
7:07 am
get the 1,237 delegates, do you expect republican leaders, the republican party, to fall in line behind you as the presumptive nominee? >> i do. they're already calling. i have the biggest people in the party, if there is such a thing because i'm not sure whether to use the word establishment, what it means. mitt romney, by the way, ran the worst race perhaps in the history of presidential politics. >> who is calling? >> he's campaigning now for kasich. i think people are not digging mitt romney too much. that's for sure. they'll send him the signal. the biggest people in the party are calling. they want to sit down. they want to make things right. a lot of people are calling because they see what's happening. savannah, we brought millions of people, millions -- it's the biggest story in politics worldwide -- we brought millions of people in, and they're voting in the primaries. we're up 70%.
7:08 am
there's no enthusiasm for hillary, especially. i mean, no enthusiasm. >> let me jump? >> millions of people are going to give us a tremendous victory in november. >> let me ask you about the comment on the ad running in many states. it's an anti-trump pac. basically, it takes real women, and they repeat some of the things you have said about women over the course of the last several months or year or so. it's very difficult to watch. would you like to take back any of these comments you've made? >> let me just say about that, it was an ad put up by mitt romney's people. mitt romney is a sour guy. >> it's an anti-trump pac. no question. >> let me tell you, every single poll of every single state i've won, of which i've won, you know, a vast majority, but every single poll coming out, the exit
7:09 am
i lead with the military. i lead with the vets. i lead with virtually everyone. >> would you take back any of the quotes, anything you've said that you think in the light of day, well, maybe that wasn't the greatest thing to say? >> i have not seen the ad, so i'd have to seen it. i've heard about it but i have not seen the ad. >> donald trump, a huge day for you and the other candidates on both sides of the spectrum. thank you for your time this morning. >> thank you very much. let's turn to chuck todd, moderator of "meet the press." let's do the republicans before we turn to the democrats. we've seen where the delegates stand right now. lay it out for us, the various scenarios. >> most likely, basically, this is the if the polls are right. trump would win 3 of the 5. cruz with missouri. kasich with ohio. this is where we could stand. trump has a lead in the
7:10 am
under this scenario, what happens is, i'll go through it, you assume he wins 50% of the delegates for the remaining states. he comes up, at least -- this is the rosiest scenario if he loses ohio -- about 50 short. that's why ohio is important. he gets ohio, they can't stop him. if he loses one of them, i think they stop him. just being 50 short, i think, is a problem right now for him. >> if john kasich wins his home state of ohio, does it propel him or just allow him to hang around? >> i think it could propel him. next week, you have utah and arizona. kasich win in ohio, he could win in utah. cruz could win arizona. balloon of trump. i feel like we say, trump could lose this. it's like lucy and the football for the anti-trump forces. oh, this is the night they're going to get them. football is yanked away, trump wins 4 of 5 and can't stop them. >> we'll ask for your take on
7:11 am
first, nbc's kristen welker is there. good morning. >> good morning to you. could be a turning point in the democratic race. secretary clinton feeling confident here in the delegate-rich state of florida and also north carolina. senator sanders liking his chances in missouri and also clinton's home state of illinois. watch. polls show clinton with a comfortable lead. both campaigns think it's closer, particularly after sanders' surprise win in michigan, which showed his message on trade and the economy is resonating with voters in the midwest. to counter, clinton has been touting her plans to bolster the manufacturing sector. the two have been take ing jabs. last night at town halls, both saved their sharpest attacks for the gop front runner donald trump. >> he's been building this incitement. he has been leading crowds in jeering protesters.
7:12 am
punching people in the face. he's been encouraging the man handling of both, you know, people who are attending, as well as journalists. >> this guy has insulted mexicans, muslims, women. he's insulted veterans. john mccain, a war hero. the american people won't vote for somebody like that. >> we're getting a snapshot of the race this morning according to the latest nbc news/surveymonkey poll. clinton topped sanders nationally. it's a 13 point lead, down slightly from the 17-point lead she had the last time the poll was conducted. if clinton has a strong night, she could all but put this race out of reach if . if senator sanders has a big night, he could have more momentum. >> thank you. that sets the table nicely for chuck todd. there is suspense on the democratic side. sanders is competitive in some
7:13 am
>> take away the super delegates and you're down to a 200 delegate lead here. in the states tonight, we assume that she is going to win the two states. she could win by enough where she could lose the midwestern states here to sanders and still win the night on delegates. ohio and illinois. first, the illinois stuff, there is a subplot here. mayor of chicago, rahm emanuel, so unpopular. sanders has been attacking him. she could lose chicago and that's why she could lose illinois. missouri looks like oklahoma, which is a state he won. he's definitely in comfortable shape. this is the pivotal one, in ohio. moe mentum wise, if he wins 3 of 5, there's the sense of, look at this. after michigan, winning big states. even if he loses the night on delegates, the next seven contests, bernie sanders could win all seven and the momentum could get serious and she could be in trouble. >> where would be her best chance to gain momentum back or get back on track? >> it'll take a month.
7:14 am
pennsylvania, new york, connecticut, maryland. it could be a while. arizona and utah next week, she could lose both. that's why tonight, she needs to win ohio and illinois to truly put this race away. >> what i take away, ohio, ohio, ohio, on both sides. >> yes. >> chuck, thank you. let's turn to major news out of washington and a first for the nfl. a high-ranking, league official acknowledging a link between football and a brain disease. willie has more on that. >> good morning. c.t.e. is a degenerative brain disorder linked to head trauma. while the league settled a class action lawsuit tied to conclusions, it never acknowledged the link definitively. that changed on monday. >> reporter: a landmark admission from america's biggest league. for the first time in its history, the nfl admitting a link between the brain disorder c.t.e. and the repeated head trauma football players suffer. the statement came monday in a
7:15 am
nfl's senior vice president for health and safety, jeff miller. >> mr. miller, is there a link between football and degenerative brain disorders like c.t.e.? >> research shows a number of retired nfl players were diagnosed with c.t.e. the answer is yes. but there are a number of questions that come with that. >> reporter: that research dating back to a study released last september found c.t.e. in 87 of 91 former pro players. the autopsy shows former players like those who committed suicide, had the disorder. >> the broader point and the one your question gets to is what that necessarily means and where do we go from here with that information? >> reporter: the admission is a departure from years of league policy. in 2013, the nfl settled a class action lawsuit with former players, paying $765 million. pledging future research on the
7:16 am
but the league did not admit any wrongdoing. nor that football was the cause disorders. in a statement to nbc news overnight, the league reiterated miller's point, that a lot more questions needs to be answered. adding, we want the facts to develop better solutions. that's why we're committed to advancing medical research on head trauma, including c.t.e., to let the science go where the science goes. >> c.t.e. can only be diagnosed after death. with many athletes suffering diseases like early on set dementia and als, this is looked at as a positive sign for people hoping changes come to the game they love to watch. this is a question parents have been asking, do i let my kids play football? now that you have the nfl talking about that link, that becomes a more difficult question to answer. >> willie, thank you. also this morning, disturbing story. we're learning more about this
7:17 am
detained in northern iraq. richard engel is on that story for us. good morning. what can you tell us? >> good morning. as far as we can tell, this is the first time ever that an alleged american isis member surrendered on the battlefield. it's unclear what will happen to him next. >> reporter: kurdish fighters say this is a video of an isis fighter just after he surrendered to their position in northern iraq. when they asked where he was from, to their surprise, he said, united states. the kurds say they found the 26-year-old's virginia driver's license on him. an uncle confirmed his identity to nbc news and said the family thought the young man was traveling in europe. but there was a different reaction at the family home in alexandria alexandria. >> i'm not talking to nobody. leave the area. >> reporter: his father tried to
7:18 am
angrily insisting -- >> wrong information. >> reporter: all their information about his son was wrong. a kurdish news agency reported that he crossed the turkish border a few months ago and joined isis. when the kurds asked where he'd been, he answered, mosul, an isil stronghold in iraq. the kurdish fighters say he was trying to leave isis when he stumbled into kurdish-held territory. a bizarre desertion. >> u.s. officials say isis is facing growing pressure to keep its fighters loyal, as the group is facing pressure and military attacks from the united states, russia, iran and a whole host of other enemies. back to you. >> richard, thank you very much. let us make a turn now and get a look at the weather. al is off today and dylan is? >> hi, guys. we haven't seen much rain in louisiana and texas, but the flooding is a major concern.
7:19 am
right now. this is some of the worst non-hurricane related flooding ever seen. homes are underwater, entire towns are underwater. even though we are starting to see the skies dry out, it'll take at least another week before these rivers come below the flood stage. they're so high above it, with record flooding in situations, that it is going to be a problem for at least the rest of this week. you can see all these red diamonds. that's where we still have major flooding occurring, as the water trickles through the rivers. we're looking at the pearl river. current level, 19.37 feet, more than hurricane isaac produced way back when. that's why we're seeing this as worst than the flooding we've seen. in the sabine river in texas, stage. we still have the chance, perhaps this week with a couple of isolated showers and storms, seeing another 1/2 up to an inch of rainfall in louisiana and new orleans.
7:20 am
including overnight, isolated tornadoes. biggest threat is hail and damaging wind gusts, including chicago. it could cause delays at the airports later tonight. that's a look at the weather
7:21 am
>> that's your latest forecast. >> thank you very much. just ahead, prosecutors move to revoke the bail of the former prep school student convicted in a sex assault case. will he end up behind bars? plus, why the goldman family are slamming the popular "people series. first, this is toad on "today" on

7:32 am
>> good morning, matt. this latest twist in the case came from the a chance encounter, when a reporter who covered his trial stumbled upon labrie on the train. she struck up a conversation and posted it on the internet. >> guilty or not guilty? >> reporter: new trouble for owen labrie, convicted of sexual assault on a 15-year-old classmate in a trial last year. he's been out on bail while his conviction is being appealed. prosecutors say a series of tweets by a journalist show what they call clear and convincing evidence that labrie violated the conditions of his release eight times. now, they want his bail revoked. first. >> reporter: the tweets posted by a reporter who covered the trial for "vice." she was shocked to run into him on the subway in boston two weeks ago where they struck up a conversation. >> he'd just come from seeing

7:34 am
i walked out of the courthouse with my chin up, and i'd do it the exact same way. he never got locked up and remains free on bail, pending his appeal. labrie's lawyers declined to speak on camera but told the local newspaper that zalkind's tweets indicated he was worried about meeting his cower phu urfew and he was in compliance. >> he has ten days to answer these allegations in court but a hearing date hasn't been set. he can walk into the court a free man and come out a prisoner. >> dramatic turn. thank you. now to something we touched on earlier. sarah palin's husband hospitalized after a snowmobile accident. she's saying more about his injuries. gadi schwartz is in palmer, alaska, north of anchorage. >> the palin family is rallying around todd palin, still in intensive care after the violent snowmobile accident.

8:38 am
>> well, it's because i've lived a long time. i've done a lot of stuff. been recognized in a lot of ways. but i'm just -- well, i might not be like everybody else, but i'm just happy being myself. frankly, don't want a lot of frills and bells and whistles. like to be alone. love to sit with my dogs as a regular person. eat when i want to. stuff everybody kind of really wants in their life, and those are my same ambitions. >> at the risk of upsetting you as we end the interview, you are legendary, and you are iconic. one of my favorite people to talk to. >> thank you, matt. >> pleasure, as always. >> terrific. >> she'll be back with kathie lee and hoda. the book is "above the line." what will they wear? your chance to pick the dress and tux and other stuff for our wedding couple.

convened by the u.s. house of representas commi on energy and commerce. say. >> mr. miller, do you think there is a link between football and degenerative brain disorders likec.t.e.? >> certainly, the research shows a number of retired nfl players ar c.t.e., so the answer to that question is certainly yes. there is also a number of questions that come with that. i think the broader point, and the one your question gets to, is what that necessarily means and where do we go from here with that >> that is significant because the nfl has never explicitly made the connection. they t settled the lawsuit but never said there was a direct link. a study released last september found c.t.e. in 87 of 91 former pro players. the autopsy show former football greats s greats, those who committed suicide, had c.t.e. there are more questions that
